Bangladesh to host India and Pakistan in tri-series


India have agreed to tour Bangladesh for a tri-series in 2008 or 2009 with Pakistan as the third side, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) announced here in Chittagong on Sunday.

“We have agreed to play the tri-series in Bangladesh. I think it can be played in 2008 or 2009,” Niranjan Shah, the BCCI secretary, said.

“We have to make some adjustments to the International Cricket Council (ICC) calendar. The Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) has readily agreed to all the conditions put before them,” he added.

Shah is among six BCCI officials currently in Bangladesh for the tour on invitation of the BCB and the officials held a meeting last night to discuss prospects of further tours between the two countries in the near future.

Curiously, Bangladesh are yet to play a Test in India since gaining Test status in 2000, while India are already into their second Test tour. Shah said that a reciprocal tour of India is in the pipeline.

“We are very willing to call them,” he added. “We want to help them. That’s the reason we have agreed to play the tri-series. Bangladesh is welcome to India,” he expressed.
